My wife is a Chinese national from Heilongjiang. She hasn't been back to China for almost a year now. Saint Lucia typically has visa-free access for Chinese citizens. We have lived in England together for ~5 years and I am a British citizen.
According to Saint Lucia newspapers (1, 2, 3), I see that Saint Lucia has just imposed a travel ban on visitors who have visited China in the last 14 days. I didn't find any reports that this applies to Chinese citizens, only any non-Saint Lucian who has visited China in the last 14 days who tries to enter Saint Lucia.
My wife hasn't visited China in almost a year, but I'm afraid that she may be denied entry when we arrive on Saturday 8th because she is Chinese and has a Chinese passport, and paranoia is high at the current time.
What kind of evidence is suggested in cases like these to validate claims that she was in England (and thus not in China) during this period? I'm trying to:
- Get evidence from her work's HR, but I'm not sure we will get it in time.
- Use the stamps from her passport to show she didn't leave the UK (Chinese citizens need a stamp on exiting the UK), but I'm not sure whether they will accept that or be sure of the implications.
Are there any other documents which could or should be provided in situations like this?
